Careers at Gorilla 76

Gorilla 76 is an inbound marketing agency for the industrial sector. We help manufacturers, service providers, distributors, builders and their subcontractors grow their businesses online.

We’re small — and that’s intentional. It allows us to be nimble and really good at what we do. We’re proud to pass up more work than we take on, and this isn’t snobbery. It’s simply how we focus.

No matter the position for which we’re hiring, we’re looking for motivated, business-minded professionals who want to use their creativity in a way that makes a difference. This is a place to not only be creative but also to think creatively. Learn more about what it takes to be a Gorilla here.

Our neighborhood

We think the Central West End is the best neighborhood in St. Louis. And we’re in the heart of it all.


Located above Pi Pizza and a very short walk from Dressel’s, Cafe Osage, Mission Taco, Central Cafe, Llewellyn’s and Whole Foods, it’s safe to say we have the best lunch options in town.


From coffee to cocktails, smoothies to beer — this neighborhood has a pour for everyone. With Gamlin Whiskey House and Brennan’s down the way and Herbie’s across the street, there are lots of venues for late-afternoon brainstorms.


There’s always something to do after work, at lunch or when you need to get outside and do some thinking. Take a stroll to the zoo. Do some lunchtime walking in Forest Park. Whatever your preference, there are plenty  of ways to get out and stretch your legs.

Gorilla offers paid internships year round in marketing strategy, copywriting and art direction/graphic design. Our internships offer real-world work experience for real clients. This isn’t a coffee and donuts type of internship, but an opportunity to sharpen your skill set, learn about B2B marketing, and prepare yourself for a career in the field.

“Interning at Gorilla 76 was exactly the experience I needed the summer after my junior year. From day one, I was doing work for real clients and was treated as an equal and trusted member of the Gorilla team. It’s a relaxed and intimate environment, and I never felt uncomfortable asking for help or feedback on my work. Jon and Joe are a fantastic team who made me feel right at home, despite me being the only female in an office of five men and a dog (a really, REALLY cute dog). They also own gorilla masks, making them officially cooler than any of my past employers.

“As a ‘Copywriter/Social Media Intern’, that was my job: copy and social. I’d never really written anything professionally before, but I was given the freedom to fail, constructive criticism in the form of copy edits from Jon and the support of everyone there to learn and grow over time.

“I didn’t spend my time making copies or coffees as an intern at Gorilla 76. I was creating content for clients from day one, while learning how to make a website work as hard for a company as the guys on the job-sites do. Gorilla’s professional development curriculum may have done more to prepare me for the world of online marketing than did my four-year university, and they paid me instead of charging me!

“During the semester that I worked with Gorilla 76, I really was given great opportunities to stretch my legs on creative, real-world projects. I was always briefed as part of the team and my ideas were always considered and several times presented to the clients. It wasn’t just a ‘coffee and copies’ type of job. I worked directly with Joe and found him to be an incredible mentor. He gave great critiques but was always constructive and direct, inspiring me to dig deeper into each project. I was even able to see some of my work come to fruition in production.
